Miniature Antique liquor Bottles

I have several small liquor bottles that we dug at an old CPR stop terminal. They were used in the open liquor cars on the passenger trains, we are told. Black glass whiskey 61/2 ", turn mold with punt. Clear, 4" squat, seam to bottom of lip. 3" Benedictine with cross, horseshoe and name, crude. Champagne type, 41/2", no seams, deep punt, pale green. Some have lead tops. Bubbles and seeds on some. Can anyone tell me where I might find more info on these bottles as none exists on the web. Thanks.

  • Most of your bottles are later 19th century liquor bottles, the clear examples possibly early 2oth c. Many are European or UK origin.

    For the benefit of all, I assume CPR is Canada Pacific Railway. I guess these were used to make drinks for train travelers.
